 DAVAO CITY – One of the suspects in the May 2009 bombing in Patikul, Sulu, who was arrested last Saturday, insisted he wants his case be transferred from Sulu to Davao City.

Temogen Sahipa Tulawie, who was implicated in the bombing incident in Patikul, Sulu on May 13, 2009, wounding 12 people, including Governor Abdusakur Tan of Sulu, appealed to the Supreme Court (SC) to push through on its order to transfer his case in this city.

The SC released on June 13, 2011 an order to the Regional Trial Court (RTC) branch 3 in Jolo, Sulu, to transfer Tulawie’s records to RTC Davao City, but until now the court in Sulu has not responded to the order and instead issued a warrant of arrest against the suspect, said Carlo Cleofe, Peace Talks Advocacy officer of Mindanao People’s Caucus (MPC).

Tulawie, alias Cocoy, 40, a resident of Scott Road, Jolo in Sulu, was arrested inside his rented house at Elenita Heights, Catalunan Grande in Davao City around 1 a.m. on Saturday.

Authorities raided the bombing suspect’s house by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by Judge Leo Jay T. Principe of the Regional Trial Court branch 3 in Jolo, Sulu.

Lawyer Mary Ann Arnado, secretary-general of the MPC and lawyer of Tulawie, said Governor Tan has also filed a motion for reconsideration to detain Tulawie in Sulu.

“Sana lang hindi ma-grant kasi malaki talaga ang tiwala namin sa gobyerno ng Davao City. Nakakasiguro kami na safe si Tulawie dito at magiging fair ‘yung takbo ng justice dito sa kanya,” Arnado said.
